My name is Jesi. I'm a certified Elementary Education teacher who is also Reading Endorsed. I taught in title I elementary school's for 8 years and currently teach English online to Chinese students. My passion is to give young learners the tools they need to be successful and confident in their educational journey. I've seen what elementary aged learners can do when you give them the independent skills they need to be successful. It's truly amazing! In college I taught English in Sierra Leone for two summers. It was there that I witnessed young children with the independent skills needed to take care of themselves and others. This inspired me to show my students that they can do more then most people think they can. My other passion is integrating subject areas. I believe that students gain a deeper understanding of learning when they can make connections across subject areas.
